my boyfriend is grow up in a single-parent family. his father and mother divoiced when he was young. his mother raise up him. some friends and relatives warn me that such family backgroud will lead to a tendency towards violence and stubborn. this usually hide in the depth of his heart and will show out in the future. i am worried about this. i love him but i don`t want to have a unfortune family life. so my dear friends, do you think the single-parent family will lead to bad influnce in his personality?

He can be a very good husband. Just because he grows up in that type of a atmoshere doesn't mean he will turn out like that. It would incline him to want to be different. My son was growing up with a dad that drank to excess and today my son has three beautiful children, a wife that loves him deeply and their family life is great. He has told me that he saw what it did to my husband and he was going to make sure he didn't end up that way. He doesn't drink and he is a well rounded dad and husband. He had it hard growing up and he could have decided to drink but his dads example showed him there is a better way. The only thing I would suggest is that you two talk about your concerns in a place where you will not be disturbed because since this is on your mind you should communicate with each other and find out what he thinks also.

That's nonsense. When someone grew up in a broken family or raised by a single parent it doesn't mean that that person will no longer be capable of loving and establishing his/her own family. Most of the time those person who grew up in that kind of family-up are the one who are most family oriented, loving and understand and who can raise their own children better as they don't want them to experience what he or she has experience.
